Does anyone know about the history of what appears to be a S-2 at Wildwood. It is kept south of the station where the round house area used to be. There seems to be a gravel business or lime rock pit there. This might be the one that used to be in Ocala off 17th street. Thanks, Bill Simons

Scott, Those locomotives from over 15 years ago are gone.The one there now is owned by Conrad Yelvington a material dealer.

The engine has been in that general location from at least 12/20/85 when I photographed it, along with a few others, awaiting disposition. If I recall, it was a part of SCL's removal of those types of units from service in the late 1970's. There were a number of same type locomotives stored, awaiting disposition, at Lakeland as well. I photographed them in August, 1983.

Several older posts on The Florida Railfan Page, report the owner of these switchers in various locations in Florida is The Conrad Yelvington Corp. They also have their own fleet of open hoppers that have one end panel painted white with a red triangle and dedicated K- Trains on CSX.
